Conservative historian Victor Davis Hanson has some instruction for today’s conservatives. Vote with your wallets,. The Democrats do and the Republicans don’t and that is why corporations don’t listen to you and me.
We talk a big game, but in the end, we keep doing business with companies that ignore us and take us for granted. Democrats would be trying to cancel them out. That’s why they listen to them.
Hanson spoke at the first annual Devin Nunes Freedom Festival in California Saturday, alongside Republican officials who discussed the America First agenda.
“It’s not a pitchfork, peasant revolt. This is a top down, this is Oprah, this is Mark Zuckerberg. This is LeBron [ James], this is the Bidens, the Obamas.”
“The most privileged, wealthy influential people in our society are telling the middle class ‘you’re gonna do that, and you’re gonna do that … because you’re racist, you’re sexist, you’re transphobic, and you’re not as spiritually pure and privileged as we are. And you’re losers.’”
“I don’t think that the first three or four months’ strategy of passive resistance or too noble to fight or the preference to lose nobly rather to win ugly is a winning strategy. I think now people on all fronts are going to have to fight back.”
“People have to say, ‘you’re not going to use that language against me. I’m not a racist, call me that all day long, I could care less. [People] have to have an attitude of utter disdain. And then they have to be an active vocabulary.”
“I think it’s well past time,” Amanda Milius, director of the 2020 documentary “The Plot Against The President,” told the Caller. “We basically are in an oligarchy right now and I think that conservatives have been asleep at the switch for so long.”
Harmeet Dhillon, an attorney and RNC national committeewoman, said that it’s about making “little choices everyday” to support companies with the same values, noting how the left does it all the time.
“By the way, the left does this,” Dhillon explained. “The left won’t use your business if you aren’t hiring people from unions. You know we can make those choices too. So, we need to fight like this is a fight over the future of our country. Not Republican versus Democrats. But American versus some other way of life.”
